Fast, long range and simple, the UltraSabre
is a capable paper airplane simpler than most similarly able aircraft. The UltraSabre was designed to complement other types, such as those of the StratoEagle
families, with a less complicated aircraft.
The development of the UltraSabre was begun as something of a challenge for myself to improve and modernize the Super Sabre
. The Super Sabre, or "classic dart" as it is more commonly known, is one of the simplest and most ubiquitous paper airplane designs in the world. Over the years, however, its obsolescence has been made abundantly clear. With that in mind, I decided to use this outdated aircraft as the basis for a design that is competitive with much newer, more capable paper airplanes. Drawing off successful configuration shapes developed for other aircraft, I used that knowledge to shape the UltraSabre. Testing of the aircraft was successful and although trimmable elevators were shown to be needed, the aircraft proved itself easily worthy of publication.
